Wood Green shop relaunched as clearance outlet
Charity gives pre-loved items a second chance so it can raise funds for dogs, cats and other small pets
A Banbury High Street charity shop which helps raise money to care for dogs, cats and other small pets has reopened as a brand-new clearance outlet. Wood Green, The Animals Charity’s shop will be offering customers clothing, accessories, bric-a-brac and small furniture at bargain prices.
The store raises funds to help pets in need whilst reducing the number of items that end up being recycled or sent to landfill.
Jake Hornsbury, Acting Head of Retail at Wood Green, said: “We are very excited about the new format of the store. It’s been really well received by shoppers – once people come in and see the amazing deals that are available, they keep coming back”.
Wood Green, The Animals Charity, helps around 7,000 pets in need each year – from urgent veterinary treatment and care through to behavioural training and support for pet owners. This is funded through money raised in its charity shops and through the support of the public with donations of stock, volunteering their time to help and offers of direct financial support.
Wood Green’s High Street clearance outlet is open from 10am to 4pm from Tuesday to Sunday. The shop is interested in hearing from anyone with items to donate, or anyone who can volunteer their time to help the charity. Jake Hornsbury said, “Wood Green also offers a free stock collection service, which is perfect for those people who have had a clear out at home during lockdown. We are always looking for people to volunteer with us so if you are on furlough, have some spare time or would like to learn new skills in a safe and fun environment, please get in touch”.
